This hand-cast ring was modified from a much-used 19th-century Scottish wax seal. The original piece had multiple stamps with wonderfully cryptic sentiments and images, all appearing in mirror-image reverse. This was so when the seal was pressed into hot wax, the text would be embossed legibly, right-side-around. We added a ring base, making sure to leave lots of rustic detail intact to reference the object's utilitarian history. Then we added an orange sapphire into the raw brass, which creates a juxtaposition of unpolished metal and bling. Note that your ring's text will be backwards, just like the original artifact.
